only other couple things i can think of would be to:

Inspect MASTER CYLINDER (BRAKE SYSTEM) - Worn or leaking brake master cylinder.

Inspect BRAKE FLUID TYPE - Brake fluid loss or contamination

Inspect BRAKE HOSE - Brake hose leaking

Inspect BRAKE POWER BOOSTER - Damaged booster diaphram

Inspect BRAKE RELEASE HANDLE & CABLE - Improper installation/adjustment or damaged brake components

did you do gauge cluster swap??? i did and i don't have ABS so the brake light stayed on. Try what rompin2.0focus said or take it to the dealer. If you did do a cluster swap then maybe it's your gauge cluster came out of a car with abs and you don't. Simply unscrew the bulb from the back of the cluster and you're problem will not be noticed. Just be sure to make the e-brake is down whenever you start driving.

Yes, I swap the cluster and probably you are all right. The cluster came from an automatic trasmission with ABS. I'm going to check all the brake system anyway just in case. Thank you for your advices.
